Washington Brewers Festival Moves to Marymoor Park Next Month

The three-day event is expected to draw 15,000 people over Father's Day weekend.


Redmond's beer-lovers will be able to imbibe closer to home for the 2012 Washington Brewers Festival, a three-day event that is moving to this year.

Held at Saint Edward State Park in Kenmore for six of the last seven years, with a brief stint at Seattle Center, the festival is setting up shop at Marymoor because it offers a more central location and space for the growing event, said Eric Radovich, executive director of the Washington Beer Commission.

“We’re growing, and the opportunity to showcase our great brewers and beers to some new folks (at Marymoor) is also a part of it,” Radovich said.

Radovich said organizers expect approximately 15,000 people to attend this year's festival, which takes place June 15-17. Advance tickets are available online now for $20.

The number of Washington breweries at the festival will be increasing this year, from about 50 last year to 60 in 2012. Radovich said a list of participating brewers will be released sometime next week.

Also new this year will be three gourmet food trucks—, Lumpia World and Jerk Station, in addition to the festival's regular food offerings. 

The event will remain family friendly, with a kids' play area and all-ages admission on Saturday and Sunday. Other returning features include a cider and wine tasting area and live music performances.
